Hi, I’m new here, and am hoping someone can help me.
I am trying to knit the baby hat pattern on the Lion Brand Velvetspun yarn. I’ve done it twice now, and pulled it out both times, due to the cast on edge not being elastic enough to actually fit a baby’s head.
The first time, I cast on the required stitches with size 10.5 needles, and there was no give at all. The second time, I cast on looser, with size 11 needles, and used a cable cast on, and still don’t see how a baby could wear this.
I’d really like to make a few of these, so if anyone has any other suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
